It is a little sporty for a small SUV. Sorry I can no longer get a new one with a manual transmission. I guess only 2% of them were being sold as manuals and Toyota just did not see any profit in keeping a manual version.
Toyota RAV4 Ratings, Reviews and Analysis
Ratings & Reviews
See Pros and Cons above. This car handles like an underpowered SUV, it is no sports car but has performed very well indeed in the role(s) for which it was designed. It has aged very well and performs as well now as when it was new.
I thought the car looked great and I wanted a Toyota. I am disappointed in the quality of the car for example the doors feel light or not solid when shutting the doors. The visors are really cheap as well as the vanity mirrors.
I like that it was easy to drive, park, handle. It continues to be very dependable and I feel it is overall a great, safe vehicle. I hate the loud road noise and riding in this car on long trips.
